View Full Version : Quicktime Compression out of AE

04 April 2005, 07:16 AM
Hey everyone, Quick question regarding quicktime compressors out of After Effects.

In anticipation for my portfolio show at school, I was wondering if anyone could suggest off hand, the best quality compressor to output into Quicktime with.

I was under the impression that Sorrenson 3 was the uber quality compressor for quicktime, but i find that it destroys the smooth transitions between shades of colors, you can really see the segmentation of the gradients, at least, when i use Sorrenson 3, that is the effect i run into..

Just curious if anyone could point me in the right direction, thanks everyone =)

QT has some lossless codecs. if your playback-machine is fast and your resolution is not too high you could try png compression. did you try a higher color setting with sorenson3?

I always use the VBLE codec but the other ones work perfectly too.
